Visions of Leadership week

The HEC MBA Program takes an Analytical, Critical, and Experiential approach to leadership training that is guided by two principles: first, leadership is an Act, and second, in order to be a leader, you need relational know-how, or “savoir-relier.”™.
Following its strategy of excellence, the HEC MBA program has developed this cutting-edge initiative within the scope of the HEC Visions of Leadership Center.

This Visions of Leadership Week is structured around a series of interactive Q&A style conferences as well as workshops based on live case studies to work on the notion of Acts of leadership.
